INTERTOWN PUBLIC TRANSPORT. ALTERNATIVES FOR CANBERRA

Canberra's intertown public transport service is the central part of a previously agreed overall strategy of public transport services whereby feeder buses radiate from the independent town centres which, in turn, are linked by A high quality intertown service. Previous studies have suggested busway, rail, or automated systems (if available) for operation on the metropolitan intertown service. This report describes a study which examined a large number of conventional and non-conventional alternative public transport systems for use on the express intertown service which at present is operated with buses running in mixed traffic. The study primarily evaluated the feasible alternatives on technical, economic and environmental grounds, although other considerations were also taken into account. No consideration was given to the feeder bus system which was assumed to provide the same service irrespective of the type of intertown system utilized. /TRRL/
